I have still got several books of petrol coupons dating back to threatened trouble way back in the 1970s.

Around 1976, I was just getting back into model aircraft, so trainers were the order of the day.

Thread: Perry carbs.
16/07/2019 19:49:39

I still have a Graupner Bell 47 helicopter fitted with HB 25 and the Perry carb is grey in color, whereas they are usually black. Could be a special. I also have a couple of K&B 35 engines fitted with Perry carbs. I also once fitted one on a Merco 35 with good results.

I notice the Morgan has disc brakes, I think a large anchor would look more in keeping.

"When I can fly my Wot4, for example, for up to 25 minutes on a battery"

you really fly a wot4 for 25 minutes?

how big a tank does that need?

My brain goes to mush at 8 minutes.

Don you are so right.

Thread: The German Airplane Museum
15/07/2019 20:47:03

A museum well worth a visit, the full size exhibits are great. You see things from the other side of the fence, if you see what I mean. Can't say I was interested in the model stuff.

Thread: Perry carbs.
15/07/2019 20:36:04

There is an O ring behind the big disk which rots in time. This then leaks air. Also dirt is a problem. There should be a spring on the needle. There is also another O ring where the carb fits into the engine, this could also be rotted.

I had several many years ago they mostly ran very well, but any sign of trouble I disassembled them and cleaned them. There were two slightly different versions.

Thread: The wonders of simulators.
14/07/2019 22:38:15

The great thing about using a simulator is that after a bit of practice it makes your reactions automatic.

Therefore no thinking time is needed in a real time situations.

England bowled out Australia for 223 in the Semi-Final of the Cricket Woirld Cup then proceeded to score 226 for 2 in only 38.1 overs!

They face New Zealand in the final.

NZ in the final.

Is that good news or bad news. smiley

A neighbor of mine used to have combine harvesters in his working days and he never stops telling me of the day he harvested a model aircraft. Luckily the metal detectors in the machine did their job and no damage to the machine ensued. The plane was less lucky ending up slightly crushed.

When I was a kid the Eagle comic painted a wonderful new world. And it had Dan Dare pilot of the future.

  1. Wasn't it Quentin Crisp who said...

“There is no need to do any housework at all. After the first four years the dirt doesn't get any worse.”

LOL. .. Love it.


And Quintin Crisp was a Naked Civil Servant, if that's near enough.

Nice to see a bit of fun in this doom ridden world

Thread: What does your wife or significant other half think of your hobby?
09/07/2019 22:47:40

It's not only model aeroplanes that cause friction. My brothers daughter has just parted with her partner of fifteen years over Red Bull Soapbox Derby's, at which he is very good and very devoted.

Thread: Summer is here!!....Who's been flying??
09/07/2019 22:34:14

I have only flown seven times this year due to diabetic foot problems, but slowly improving so hoping for a good autumn.

Germany are increasing the use of coal fired power stations, and some low quality coal at that, so their power batteries will be carbon positive.
